ETIHAD STADIUM, MANCHESTER
"For me it’s very important to be an entertaining team,” said Manuel Pellegrini after City's latest demolition of a title rival, this time the 6-3 win over league leaders Arsenal. It was a hugely significant result for City who have now cut Arsenal's lead at the top to just three points. Pellegrini's commitment to playing an attacking brand of football is winning him plaudits, and City look near-unbeatable at home.
Arsenal have been the only team who have put anything like a title-winning run together so far this season, but after dropping points at home to Everton last weekend, it will be interesting to see how they react to this latest setback. For City, sorting out their away form is now an absolute priority. If they do, it's difficult to see anyone else winning the title.
